Cultural Confluences: The Art of Lenore Chinn celebrates the public unveiling of The Oracle Room, a painting for which Chinn has received a 2011 San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artist Commission, in Visual Arts. It is contextualized by Chinn’s most iconic canvases which focus on Asian American and LGBT themes.
“The unveiling of every new painting by Lenore Chinn is a cultural event worth seeing – as Chinn is among San Francisco’s most inspiring artists. Her elegant work bridges communities and aesthetics.”
